If you had to read that headline more than once, don’t worry, I am sure you are not the only one. This is just rich. The so-called ‘Dreamers’ who are illegally in our country, are actually threatening to leave the country if there is no deal made to keep them here. Let that sink in.
Geez, entitled much?!
Michelle Malkin had this to say back in September in a Fox Business interview and it seems all the more relevant now. Malkin said, “The fact is that if there were a single ‘deserving dreamer’ in this country, they would be deserving because they would acknowledge that they are owed nothing and that they deserve nothing from a country into which they were born because of their parents’ illegal activity.”
Malkin went on to say, “You can talk to anyone who’s come into the country the right and proper way, including my own parents. There are so many first- and second- generation Americans who understand that citizenship is a privilege and not a right. And when you have an entire class of 800,000 people who feel entitled to be here despite the law, you are creating the very trouble we are in now.”
H/T Daily Wire
A group of DREAMers, young illegal immigrants fighting to stay in the country following the Trump Administration’s refusal to extend the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) executive order, say they’ll leave the country if a deal isn’t reached . . . err . . . to keep them in the country.
Speaking to CNN, one of these DREAMers, Alex Velez, said, “I will leave. I will leave America as soon as possible,” claiming that she would prefer to depart the country on her own terms than wait for the United States to collect and deport her.
The theory appears to be that, if DREAMers suddenly disappear, Americans will notice their absence. Velez and her sister claim they own businesses, pay tuition, and hold jobs, and that America has a duty to keep them here in order to maintain their contributions.
The problem is, for the Velez sisters, striking against the United States for refusing to accommodate them isn’t a plan with a likely payoff. The pair are undocumented citizens brought over by their parents from Venezuela, and the situation in their home country is less than ideal.
The United States Congress may be taking its time renewing the DACA Act, but Venezuela is currently crumbling under a dictator — so the theory that they’d return to a more awesome place to show President Trump what he’s missing might not pan out.
If a comprehensive immigration reform plan is not approved by early March, DACA recipients will be allowed to finish out the term of their amnesty contract before being declared “illegal.” Congress says it is working on a solution and President Trump has been clear that DACA recipients who overstay will not be targeted for deportation.
I will say this for the Dreamers, they have got some guts. They have no problem flaunting their illegal status and protesting everywhere without regard for our laws. Though this declaration….threatening to leave our country… sure takes it to a new level of entitlement!
Look, I see their point. Their point is that we somehow need them in our country. I am also sure there are some “Dreamers” that contribute and under ordinary circumstances, we would be happy to have them in our country. But the fact is, “Dreamers” are not as important as a group as they think they are.
If “Dreamers” really wanted to stay and make a case for it, you would think they would show a little more gratefulness to our country. You would think if they want to become part of our country, they would also see the need for protecting our borders. But running around hating our president and acting like this country belongs to then, that will get them nowhere fast.
To me, it sounds like we have found the solution to the DACA problem. Do nothing and they can leave on their own. Problem solved! This is probably as likely as all of those celebrities who left the country after Trump won the presidency, but hey we can still hope!
